Just to be clear: I meant zap away my OWN memories. Either way, the Scorpion 200 might well do the job -- would need a few modifications of course.

Of course. It would have to be selective. Temporal selectivity is possible, now, however. So if there were no experiences at all in the last X minutes that were worth remembering, then it's just: "ZAP," and those few minutes "didn't happen," and thus "aren't you."
